We used to make white ash snowshoe frames.  We'd soak the blanks in water with Downey fabric softener, then put them in a heated pressure steamer with 25 psi pressure for  couple of hours. It was amazing how pliable the wood was, for  a few minutes until it cooled.

   I did not get his picture but he sent me one of what he did with the wood he got from me a year of so back.


 
He is a local doctor who is retiring very soon and says he is going to spend more time wood working so I have high hope for a boost in sales. He even brought his future, now actual SIL, over last year and he bought some odd pieces for wood turning and says they turned out well. Anyway the Doctor and his wife came and bought about 20 bf of lumber. He says he just needed a couple of pieces to make legs for a dining room table he plans to make with his leftovers from the above chair project. He decided he needed a piece of 4/4 for stock so he liked a 6' 1X8 then his wife remind him that would not be enough so he bought another. She is fast becoming one of my favorite people. They love to come look and I love to see how excited he is to show off the results of his work with my wood.

Tuesday's happy customer came over just before it started raining again and picked up a 10' piece of bark on slab he needed for an outside balance beam project.
He got one but most of the bark was falling off and I mentioned it to him that it would but he got it anyway.

Today's first happy customer came by to pick up some trailer decking for a long drop frame trailer:



 
He thought he couldn't back the truck up next to the pile, but when he started moving one plank, he soon moved the truck.

Today's second happy customer came over and got a 4" thick x 18" wide clear piece of lumber 12' long.
He's going to cut it in half and make 2-9" beams to hold up a roof for his outside cooking area.
Oh well once it leaves the yard they can do what they want with it.

Today's happy customer brought over a piece of cherry burl that he bought online from somewhere out west.
He wanted it sliced down the middle.
It took a bit to get the clamp to hold it but we got it and it came out like he wanted it:



 

 
He's going to make his wife either a coffee table or an end table from the best piece.
I hope she's happy.

   Good job on the burl. I have cut a few and I always tell the customer they may just explode during the process and not to hold me responsible if they do. It is a fine line between not enough tension to hold them steady and overclamping and throwing shrapnel everywhere. It looks like he had several inches of good wood on the outsides to help hold it together. Anyway, burls are one of those breath holding exercises IMHO.
